Yoga for Children

Yoga supports children’s personal and social development teaching them positive values and how to cope positively with the pressures of today’s modern lifestyle.

Research studies have identified that children and young people who practice Yoga have fewer disciplinary problems within school and gain higher grades.


Yoga for Children in Key Stage 2

We provide Children's Yoga Classes as an After School Yoga Club at Springbank Primary School, Peacock Drive, Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, NG16 3HW from 3.30pm to 4.30pm on alternate half termly basis 

Each term you will have the opportunity to request a place in this Yoga Club for your child. This After School Yoga Club is managed by Springbank Primary School and therefore only available to children who attend this school.


Yoga for Young People

Young people may simply wish to do yoga or choose yoga as a subject to study as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme for which we will provide evidence of attendance on request.

Young people aged from age 12 years are welcome to attend our general yoga classes accompanied by an adult with parental responsibility who also participates in the class.


Yoga for Children and Young People with Special Needs

We are delighted to offer individual yoga classes to meet and address the needs of children and young people with special needs either within their homes or within a local venue of a reasonable cost. 

A free 30 minute consultation is available by Sue who has an excellent understanding and former professional experience of children and young people needs. 

Price: Will be discussed and negotiated with the person who has parental responsibility. The national average cost for one-hour private or one-to-one lesson is between £25 - £40.00p per hour.

Please note: We do not provide one-to-one lessons for adults.
